What exactly is the reference design? A tablet or??

Why don't we get the hardware specs and provide better CAD files to the 
companies making boards with them. Part of the problem is inexperienced 
hardware 'engineers' generating some pretty awful boards that almost 
work. Why put all this software effort into buggy hardware when we could 
also provide board stuffers with solid design files?
